Gang, I saw Diane's Talk live in DC - she owned the operahouse stage & got great appreciation from the movers & shakers in the audience. She grabbed their attention, kept it, and her Talk was the The Talk for the rest of the TEDMED conference. If anyone missed it, they were envious. Click on the link and enjoy.

I just wanted to point out that the layers arranged in 0 degree then 90 degree orientation is how plywood works! It would make a nice slide...


Anne- it is indeed how plywood works, although a 2-ply plywood is pretty limited. More layers make plywoods tougher, and the best ones also have layers with other fiber angles than just 0 and 90 degrees. Insect exoskeletons are laid down like that - lots of layers, each with the fibers at a different angle.


Enjoyed your talk. Now I am very curious to know how the corkscrew-shaped penis of many ducks works! I would think the additional dimensions would require a more complex design.

It's rewarding when your audience paid attention to your lecture, more if they asked questions about it. Yes, Diane, big public talks are a lot more different compared to classroom talk. I experienced it once when there was seminar held in our school wherein I was chosen to be the speaker. I had to prepare for my talk which will only last for 10minutes for about a month.

I am a new reader to the site and I find the author, Diane, as a good writer. She explains the topics really well and now, I've come across to this video wherein Diane is speaking about anatomy and all in front of an audience and I must say that I am even more amazed! You have that power to easily capture the attention of your reader or audience for that matter. Great job!
